Reviewed 2006-02-22
Disc 4 of the new 6 cd box set of all his material, famous to obscure. The father of “lewd” comedy, challenging the conservative religious fundie nuts to his own demise. Early 60’s material. Really good. ALL CLEAN

1) “I’m going to piss on you”, that pretty much the joke, 60secs
2-4) performance-like with drum/cymbal accompaniment, commentary on shelly bermen, joey bishop, comedians of the day
(PLAY 5-7 TOGETHER) 5) “obscenity”, “vulgar”, “motherfucker”, great stuff commenting on its definition etc
6) generational stuff, funny comments on the hipster scene of the day, jazz, “motherfucker continues
7) “is it the word that’s dirty or the act?”, great socio commentary on war atrocities of US GIs fucking mothers and daughter during WWII
8) jimmy Hoffa, dated stuff
9) skit involving a homosexual deviant Lone Ranger
10) great, all about “drugs”, hypocrisy of drug laws, pre-dating Bill Hicks by decades, goes together with next track

12) Marilyn Monroe’s death
13) remembering some girl you screwed when you are famous
14) Kennedys
15) WC Fields, ends cold so let go into next track

23) espouses on his idea of comedy, in-studio, philosophy, goes through all the classic comedians, nice critique
24) skit, all about snot
25) picking up on women, how “faggots” pick up on eachother, wow
26) prostitute screwing the president
27) wow, divorce, TV influence, really deep and heavy stuff
28) midgets
29) audience heckling, Las Vegas sickness, shithouse town, Pearl Bailey, blends with next
30) playing Australia
31) skit, bela lugosi/Dracula living in a new york apt bldg, great live feel
32) wow, a “hidden mic” recording of cops warning him before he goes on stage to behave, quality is so so, would be nice with noise… wow
